Wrist corsage

Alonzo, owner of Our Secret Garden florist in West Seattle, modeled a wrist corsage he had just finished for a wedding that evening. We had adjacent booths at the West Seattle Street Fest this weekend.

Macro of two fern fronds

Pretty contrast in textures of two ferns. The one on the left is a sprengeri and the one on the right is maybe a kind of bird’s nest fern?

Pink lavender

This lavender is a very pale pink. Same exact smell! See the bee working it? They love lavender of all kinds.

Perfect pink rose

I just can’t get enough of roses lately. What a color this beauty is!

Probably a David Austin rose, its many-petalled center like a peony makes this so romantic
